Day 1: Nesselwang - Seefeld
After that it was around the Plansee, with our first weird action being to bike through the water next to a bridge. Nico's comment: no risk, no fun. My right foot was wet for the rest of the day. Carried on along the shore after that little experience and had a short break before continuing along the side. Saw a bridge with a few people jumping if into the water.
After that was where the fun really started. Along a very long trail following the edge of e water with lots of small ups and downs, roots and stones. Basically a super trail run for a very long time. Nearly never had to get of and most of the walking people where friendly. Reached the end of that after spending a lot of energy on the trail but getting everything back in fun.
Took a wrong turn but noticed my error in time to turn round and take the valley down to Garmisch. Overtook and later where followed by two elderly men, but lost theme somewhere on the way. Reached Garmisch after 73 km and both had the same lunch (a huge cheese and bacon baguette) in a restaurant, which was needed badly.
Went into town for an evening meal and came back to write the blog and get some sleep.
